PENBRAYA™ Use in Specific Populations

(meningococcal groups A, B, C, W, and Y vaccine)

8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

      

8.1 Pregnancy

     

Pregnancy Exposure Registry

There is a pregnancy exposure registry that monitors pregnancy outcomes in individuals exposed to PENBRAYA during pregnancy. Individuals who received PENBRAYA during pregnancy are encouraged to contact, or have their healthcare provider contact, 1-877-390-2953 to enroll in or obtain information about the registry.

Risk Summary

All pregnancies have a risk of birth defect, loss, or other adverse outcomes. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2% to 4% and 15% to 20%, respectively.

There are no clinical studies of PENBRAYA in pregnant individuals. Available human data on PENBRAYA administered to pregnant individuals are insufficient to inform vaccine-associated risks in pregnancy.

There were no developmental toxicity studies performed with PENBRAYA.

8.2 Lactation

Risk Summary

There are no data available to assess the effects of PENBRAYA on the breastfed infant or on milk production/excretion. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother's clinical need for PENBRAYA and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from PENBRAYA or from the underlying maternal condition. For preventive vaccines, the underlying maternal condition is susceptibility to disease prevented by the vaccine.

8.4 Pediatric Use

The safety and effectiveness of PENBRAYA have not been established in individuals <10 years of age. In a clinical study, 90% of infants younger than 12 months of age who were vaccinated with a reduced dosage formulation of Trumenba had fever. PENBRAYA contains the same MenB component, in the same quantity, as Trumenba.

8.5 Geriatric Use

The safety and effectiveness of PENBRAYA have not been established in individuals >65 years of age.
